Resident Services plays an integral role in the day-to-day lives of families coordinating the provision of unmet service needs. Resident Services provides services on an as-needed basis and it facilitates on-going programs and activities for all ages that may include, but are not limited to, workshops on nutrition, youth activities, adult education, workforce development, financial literacy, mental health referrals, and other special events.
HRHA plans to utilize its community centers as service hubs for agencies to provide on-site activities for children, youth, and families. Local statistics on concerns, issues and the needs assessments results will determine the services provided at the community centers.
Resident Services assists all families, but specifically those who have not made the decision to become involved in alternative programs designed to empower residents in becoming economically self-sufficient. Consequently, some HRHA residents may elect to join the more structured, grant-funded Family Self Sufficiency Program offered for families in the public housing developments and in the housing choice voucher program.
Referral information is an excellent means of following up on services HRHA makes available to its families as it exercises efforts to empower families in becoming self-sufficient economically and self-sufficient in housing.
